Literary Birth – Book Baby Three, “Central Drive”

No Comments

I will be giving literary birth in the next sixty days to book baby number three, “Central Drive.” Sample chapters of “Central Drive” can be read by clicking here. There are many tasks to complete while waiting to give birth. I have spent hundreds if not thousands of hours writing and re-writing this baby, and I want to get it in the hands of as many readers as possible. My next step is sending my baby to a professional editor. I hold a Bachelor of Art in English. I am well read, but I am smart enough to know that this baby deserves another set of eyes.

I put in a lot of work to prepare for this birth including registering with book industry entities to increase the chance for success. I purchased a set of ten International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs) from Bowker and Bowker when I published my first novel, “360 Degrees” because I knew I had many stories to tell; click here to read sample chapters of “360 Degrees.” When I published my second book, “Urban Tango,” I did not have to worry about purchasing additional ISBNs. Click here to read excerpts of “Urban Tango” After copyrighting, I applied for an LCCN (Library of Congress Control Number). The LCCN is a must to sell to libraries. Please note, your book baby has to have an ISBN in order to be assigned an LCCN. Click on next week for directions on obtaining an LCCN.
